just arrived, connect to adapter and tried as camera lighting, take photo using iphone. no diffuser, no setup, no edit. ...love the amazing smooth shadow...will buy again 1 or 2 more.
I purchased a 5-pack of these (5000K) to construct a lighting "array" for my daughter's oil painting station, along with the FilmGrade DC supply, flicker-free dimmer, and assorted connectors, etc. for assembly. I was a little apprehensive when I discovered the 5 modules were still connected together along the edge. So I emailed support and Josh replied within a day or two with excellent instructions and advice how to separate the modules without damaging the emitters or WAGO connectors. Using his instructions I was able to separate the modules, and then proceed to mount the lights, connect them, and had a working system on the first try. Four modules provide more than enough light for her work surface. So much so that she typically needs to turn them down a bit. And the color rendition is fantastic. Definitely 5 stars for the product and the customer support.
Bright, color correct, and easy to assemble with one very important caution: the WAGO connectors are a little flimsy and very easy to dislodge. Use the tool, and make sure you only exert pressure DIRECTLY DOWNWARD when opening the little grabber clips to connect the strips. The connectors are very easy to break off if you exert any sideways force at all. Also, they are not all properly mounted: you may wish to squeeze them gently onto the board (place the strip on a hard surface and push straight down with a finger) to properly seat. You will sometimes hear a click, indicating that your intervention was needed and successful. Five stars for the LEDs, three stars for the connectors. (Hence my four star rating.)
I installed five of these as lighting for photography work, I checked the spectral output on a spectrum analyzer and saw pretty much exactly what was advertised. The connectors are a little strange, I personally would have preferred solder pads. But I am sure many would not. These are by far the best LEDs I have seen to date.
The true sun-like color spectrum is fantastic. Would love to also see these available in differently shaped arrangements in addition to the strip modules so that they could work in a variety of situations and lamp housings
Bought these to build a custom light table for viewing and scanning (with DSLR) film negatives and slides. I've very happy with the lights. It has very strong and consistent light output, LEDs are tightly packed to avoid banding or light gaps. Installation and wiring was very easy. The only thing to consider is that these come in fixed length and you won't be able to cut them to size.
My original order got lost in shipping which was not waveforms fault and they resent one quickly when I contacted them. Unfortunately two of the WAGO connectors were broken when it arrived and one more broke when I inserted the wires. It almost seems like uv damage because the plastic is so brittle. I prefer soldered connections anyway so it's not so much of an issue but for a large scale project I could see this being a problem. I am very happy with the light output though. I'm using this in a custom light fixture for a planted aquarium. I can see my plants producing oxygen or "pearling" as we call it. Also it makes the tank look amazing in pictures
Exactly what our facility was looking for in a dimmable 6500k LED light strip. Very simple to install and having all the components easily available for order was super helpful.
High quality lights and easy to use. Fit the application perfectly
We tested in our lab 2 of the LEDs D65 & D50 with a light meter (control light environment) and the specs met out specification. We keep ordering both of the LEDs from Waveform to do new R&D projects and set up new light systems for testing.
We're very please with the quality of the LEDs and love the costumer service.
Thanks Alex for your customer support!
